The young band Monster Cat took a decision to put their album called Mannequins up for free downloading on the world’s most famous torrent tracker The Pirate Bay.
RJ, also known as Psycho Cat, the alternative folk-rock band’s guitarist and vocalist, hopes that this approach will work for their audience. The band had posted the link to the tracker on their official website. Indeed, LOUD’s download made the musicians happy. The five tracks album, which is actually a mix of folk-rock tracks, is currently free for download. The band’s album also includes original wallpaper artwork and a 15% discount to their merchandise.
One may wonder why a self-funded album, which apparently costs each member of the band a four-figure sum, is now available on what the entertainment industry called “the largest facilitator of online piracy”. The band replies that as musicians, they are afraid of not to get heard, so The Pirate Bay is a great chance for them to get heard by everyone around the globe. They added that the band sold 450 CDs and 150 digital downloads before reaching the BitTorrent tracker. The musicians pointed out that The Pirate Bay also offers a promotional mechanism called The Promo Bay, which is open up to anyone and everyone willing to promote their creative works.
Monster Cat wrote in, and the website asked its own Facebook group what they thought of the band. The response was positive, and the album photo appeared on the front page on The Pirate Bay for 3 days. Although it is considered an unconventional solution, the musicians think that it’s the future of entertaining. Meanwhile, the band feels that this sort of advertising has worked out thus far. Moreover, they said that the traffic to their official website rocketed – 150.000 hits over the 3 days since their launch on The Pirate Bay.
Since the members of Monster Cat have no business background thus far, they believe that a business boost is very important, because digital downloading is changing the patterns of music distribution and ownership.
As creators of music, the band members believe they should respect digital culture and the way it is changing consumer habits. To Monster Cat, file- sharing is part of reality and they have to learn how to benefit from it. Those who are interested in the band are welcome to visit their official website to obtain details and watch their newly released music video, “Underwater”.

|Monster Cat = Genius!|
|This is exactly why the POS RIAA is freaking out.|
Radiohead did the same thing and asked for donations; WOW they sure got allot of donations and the ARTISTS see this. This is allot more money in their pockets and the amount they ask for is far less than the crappy stupid amounts demanded by the Record Industry for a CD.
|Hmm they do not mention the sales after advertising on the piratebay for free? I mean if they sold 450 cd's and 150 digital downloads, anything is better than those figures off the back off free advertising right?|
I am assuming they have had a couple thousand sales since the free exposure from people who wish to support artists who are willing to distribute thier work for free.
Only reason the RIAA, MPAA and any other entertainment industry body is freaking out is simply;
Almost all entertainment is run by a handful of people who are of a satanic disposition, therefore to make it big in the enetertainment industry you have to do dispicable acts or be groomed from birth (or both).
The current model of the producers taking lions share and having full exlusive rights to distrubution and advertising artists ensures this satanic cult can always push thier agenda on the people. Any artist tries to speak out, does not agree, they can be thrown aside and another one take the rise to fame.
Things which allow the populace to access music which is not pushing their agenda or making them money scare them, they know if it adopts on big, they will lose control over most artists, there will be no more agenda pushing and they will lose out on big money.
So yeah there is viable methods to make digital tracks available and for resonable priced if not free like above, after all artist mainly make their cash from concerts anyway, like mentioned producers take lions share from cd/digital downloads, so more people lisening to a bands music and liking it will = more venues for the artists to play in all over the world and have people willing to pay for tickets to attend! But since it will allow artist to persue thie own goals and not that of the satanists these methods have been suppressed as much as possible.
Biggest point in case is Mega Upload. Kim was making a business model to allow for free digital music distribution which any artist could have signed onto and users could pay for tracks they liked to support the artists direct, which is why they were shut down really fast, given ET and pirate bay are worse offenders for copyright infringements and have not been shut down... But Also pirate bay has the above article facility to allow artist to expose their work and recently it has been blocked by most isp's in the UK and propbly other countries as a result...
